Every meal consists of the exact amount of vitamins and minerals your body needs. The composition of the product is based on guidelines put out by health authorities. On average only about 10% of the Western population eats the recommended amount of fruit and vegetables, with the negative health effects to show for it. With this meal you'll never have an excuse to live by an unhealthy diet. And your body will thank you for it.
- Macro nutrients
Macro nutrients are, like the word macro implies, nutrients that are plentiful, such as carbohydrates, protein and fats.
- Micro nutrients
Micro nutrients are, you guessed it, nutrients that occur in smaller amounts. Like vitamins and minerals.
Why these proportions?
- In multiple studies and recommendations the ratio of 50, 20, 30 prevales in regard to commonly known macro nutrients. For example: 50% of your daily calorie intake is found in carbohydrates, 20% of your intake is found in protein and, again, you guessed it, 30% of your intake is based on fats. We gladly and greedily took over this recommendation.
What's in it?
- From the start our goal has always been to create a product with a a quality as fine as we could make it. What this means is that our product has a low GI value. GI stands for 'glycemic index', which is an indicator of how quickly sugar is converted into glucose and is, in turn, absorbed by the body. The higher the GI value, the more sugar a products contains.
Products with a high GI are:
- White bread
- Sweetend sports drinks
- White rice
Products with a low GI are:
- Brown rice
The carbohydrates in our product originate from oatmeal, which has not only a good GI value, but, additionally, holds the fibres your body craves.
Our protein source, specifically, is not derived from soy, but milk, as 90% of the worlds produced soy comes from GMO altered plants. GMO stands for 'Genetically Modified Organic', which means that the plant's DNA has been modified. GMO products can come with health risks, something we would rather not burden our consumer with.
The meal holds a minimum of saturated fats. A growing percentage of the Western population consumes too much saturated fat, which carries tremendous health risks. A trend we're not interested in following. The majority of fats in our product consist of unsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats, which is, according to a multitude of studies, a better choice in regard to a fat source.
Fibres. The forgotten health source. On average, the population consumes less than 20 grams of fibres per day. Meanwhile, the recommended daily intake is between 30 and 40 grams. Among the health benefits of fibres are saturation/satiation, lowering of cholesterol and healthy bowel movement.
The European food and safety authority has set guidelines for the intake of vitamins and minerals. Supplementation of can be used for multiple cases. Like correcting nutritional deficiencies and controlling an adequate intake of the recommended nutrients. High amounts or even excessive intake of vitamins and minerals can lead to adverse and unwanted site effects. For that reason the EFSA has set strict guidelines concerning the intake of nutrients supplements. Pulve is blended according to those guidelines in cooperation with nutrition and health experts.
